Tompkins Square Park
New York, NY 10009
This popular park in the middle of the East Village is a perfect centerpiece for its eclectic neighborhood, which houses artists, radicals, fashion lovers, and those who have lived in the neighborhood for decades and witnessed its many changes.
Tips from foursquare
This East Village gathering point is one of the City of New York's early wi-fi adopters in partnership with AT&T.
Cults don't own a dog but still love to hang out here. "It's kind of creepy...but it's great! You just sit there, maybe bring a dog treat, just ruffle some dogs and hang out."
Head over to the dog park, pretend to give one of the furry little guys a scratch on the head but actually whisper how much you hate dogs into the lil' guy's ear. "Why you gotta poop everywhere?!"

Great place to do heroin and take a nap!
